About The Tempest at Round House Theatre

Shakespeare's tale of betrayal, reconciliation, and love is part fairy tale, part romance–and all magic. In this imaginative staging by Aaron Posner and Teller, Prospero's island transforms into a traveling tent show of trickery and amazement. The production "awakens ... a sense of pleasurable, almost childlike wonder" (New York Times). After sold-out runs across the country, The Tempest makes its regional premiere at Round House Theatre.
